“The Foundation is only able to make these funds available to our students because of the generosity of our community partners,” said Jenny Dell, SRTC’s Director of Institutional Advancement. “In many cases, a scholarship makes the difference for a student that permits them to stay in college, and ultimately, to reach their career goals.”
Thanks to the generosity of the Bainbridge State College Foundation, more than 30 additional scholarships were made available to Southern Regional Technical College students for the fall 2019 semester. Preference for these scholarships was given to residents of Decatur, Early, Miller, Mitchell, Seminole, and Grady counties, as well as to students who consider Bainbridge their primary campus. “The BSC Foundation’s investment in Bainbridge-area students is a continuation of our shared mission to support higher education in Southwest Georgia,” Dell added.
The SRTC Foundation is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to promote the cause of higher education and expand educational opportunities to the students of SRTC.
